Link to the Schoolhousevideo project.
This project moves video projects from classroom to broadcast. School-based video are mastered in classrooms on digital video (see above) and broadcast on KOCE-TV, PBS in Orange County, California. KOCE broadcasts to more than 11,000,000 people in Southern California. Sample videos from students have included "commercials" for glasses that change a person's perspective, a close, positive reexamination of students' own "undesirable" neighborhood, and a positive look at "becoming a scholar" from an elementary school. Contributing classrooms have ranged from 3rd grade through 12th grade.
